It was a perfect day to start fresh. Beautiful So-Cal sunshine, mid-70 degree temps, Father's Day, and the LA Riot Squad yelling Cobra Kai quotes pregame.
A fresh, inspired Galaxy squad took the field Sunday after a three week hiatus. The Galaxy game against the Portland Timbers on Sunday simply felt like the start of something new. It was a chance to put the abysmal start to the 2012 season in the rear view mirror and to start looking ahead to bigger and brighter things. The Galaxy entered the game at the basement of the Western Conference with plenty of room to improve, and improve they did with a 1-0 victory over the Timbers.
